Fundraising efforts of Specsavers staff have helped to raise money for a guide dogs charity.

Employees who work at the branch in Portishead raised the best part of £100 for Guide Dogs for the Blind through hosting a series events.

A cake sale, sticker sale and a fancy dress day helped Specsavers support the worthy cause.

There was also a guess the dog’s name competition and staff were happy to see a soft toy pet called Marley join them in the shop.

Nic Johns, the store’s director, said: “It was great day and lots of fun for everyone involved.

“Guide Dogs Week was the perfect opportunity to fundraise, and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that came along to support the charity.

“As an opticians we feel delighted to have such a strong relationship with guide dogs and hope this continues in the future.”
